The only side to have dominated the league in such fashion so far has been Highlanders, who triumphed non-stop between 1998 and 2002, but Machapa said this week that his side, who lay second to the high-riding Bosso after weekend games, would perform their usual Houdini act and make it three titles in a row and move to within the Bulawayo giants’ record of four on the trot.
Until the recent 4-0 hiding they gave Tripple B at the weekend, Dynamos have had an uninspiring performance lately, but Machapa said the run of four games without a win would not deter them.
On Monday, the Glamour Boys sat second on the log, two points behind their Bulawayo rivals, who are enjoying a rich vein of form with five games remaining.
“We are on course in our bid to defend the league championship,” said Machapa, who joined Dynamos mid-season from South Africa’s Moroka Swallows.
“We know it’s not going to be easy, but we have the ammunition and capabilities to defend the league again. Our team is very intact and the guys are ready to go. Our coach is always steering us up and we are geared up for the victory at the end of the season.
“We have too much pressure on us as Highlanders is a big threat now, but that does not mean we are out of it. We will not give up. We will make sure we don’t slip-up in the remaining games. I know Bosso are also keen to snatch the league from us, but we will not allow that to happen.”
The Moroka Swallows reject, a former Caps United star, said he was happy to be back in Castle Lager Premiership.
“I am happy to be part of the DeMbare family. Everyone here is very supportive and making things easier for me. I would like to pay them back by helping the club reach their goal of remaining champions.’Post published in: Football
